I am staying in Johannesburg for a few days. I asked an old friend to recommend a good restaurant in the Bryanston area. We went to your restaurant. Outstanding performance all round. Well done and many thanks to you and your staff. Morkel.

My son who is 17, wanted to take is girlfriend out for a really great meal. As we had gone there a few times and knew the food was good, they caught an Uber and went. He said the food was really great, but the service was so terrible, he had to get up twice to find help. The table... More

Really great spot for a bite to eat and if you fancy having a few drinks to follow it has a great bar also. Great value for great food and wine. Not luxury but very , very good. Good atmosphere and service. Worth a visit if ur in the area.

Best place for a ice cold beer. Cant find anyone who can beat their chicken espetada - simply delicious. Steaks and chicken livers are also seriously good. Always a hard choice. Fun atmosphere and even a good place for a sit down dinner. Attentive staff always looking after you.

This little restaurant never fails to satisfy, it's food is always good, tasty and well prepared and beautifully served. The managers or owners are always there watching that everyone is happy and service is on point, organizing tables moving chairs, and hands on. They have a festive bar which adds fun to the restaurant. The staff is friendly and well... More

Disappointing service, a slow kitchen, overrun by drunk people in suits - but one of the best steaks I've ever had in my life. I was there the last Friday in June and the place was obviously busy - it took about 30 minutes to get a table (we didn't have a booking) and the moment I sat down I... More

This place has a great selection of meats and if you are going to order the espetata go hungry as its filling especially the beef version. It comes served on the skewer and is a unique way to be served. Its a great place to watch sports too although Friday nights can be cougar night so watch out unless you... More
